Welcome to ALA - Rural Professionals online

The UK's premier independent inter-professional organisation since 1975



Agricultural Law Association

For almost 40 years, ALA has been the UK’s largest inter-professional organisation devoted to the business of the countryside. We focus on the law in a non-partisan, apolitical way in order to promote its knowledge, understanding and development among those who advise rural businesses.
